Catcher on the Rhein is a student-created news magazine based at Rhine Waal University of Applied Sciences in Kleve, Germany. We are an international student-led initiative that publishes a biannual print magazine independent from any university administration, as well as periodic digitally published pieces. Our mission is to provide the latest updates on what's going on in the campus life of Rhine Waal University of Applied Sciences, in and out, as well as provide a platform for students to express themselves creatively. We welcome contributions from all students, no matter the level of involvement with COTR.


We strive to hold ourselves to a professional journalistic standard. We at COTR feel that we have a responsibility to produce works without bias and without misinformation. As an important part of democracy, news organizations should prevent the spread of fake news and promote the values of neutrality, truth, and integrity. Though we are still students, we take up that charge with honor.
